The Shangaan electro pioneer will release his first LP on June 1st.
The South African artist was snapped up by Warp in 2014 and has already released an EP on the label. (He also teamed up with Tessela for a record on Warp affilate Bleep.) Now a full-length is on the way and Nozinja Lodge sees him dive further into his self-styled brand of Shangaan electro, with a number of Shangaan vocalists featuring on the record. Warp say the LP explores "themes of love, faith and tribal customs."
Nozinja has a number of live shows happening in support of the record, including a residency at the 30-day Station To Station event at London's Barbican. Shows in New York, Amsterdam, Manchester and Sheffield have also been confirmed alongside slots at Dour and Melt.
